The pedestal has nine indentions in a circle. Each indentation has a shallow channel that runs toward a larger indentation in the middle.
Inside the purple velvelt bag, shoved into one of the skull's eye sockets is a worn and folded sheet of tattered parchment. The parchment reads:
Purple Mist needs fill the room
The vials do the deed.
Speak Tharizdun, Pure soul and let heart fall
Upon the blessed pillar
The tools of need will be revealed
In a secret cellar.
